VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy With Erica Meshke
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
For this episode, Ben sits down with Erica Meshke, who is half of the acoustic folk duo Audible Kink. They discussed Audible Kink and their mission to record, Tinder, women artists in the male-dominated industry, basic respect, and Erica shares a powerful story of calling out an abuser and how the conversation about sexual misconduct has shifted in the last few years. You can check out more episodes of Mr. Nice Guy on YouTube, and check out this interview below:
Trigger Warning: This episode deals with sexual assault/dealing with an abuser for the last ten minutes of this episode. It took incredible courage from Erica to discuss this in this medium.
